Sony Computer Entertainment remains confident in their approach and strategy for "another record year of growth and momentum" for the PlayStation Portable and PlayStation 3, SCEA CEO and president Jack Tretton said.

Talking to a gathering of retailers and developers at the annual Destination PlayStation event, Tretton called 2009's line up of games for both platforms unprecedented.

"With a year of record sales ushering us into the new year, we continue to raise the bar on providing consumers the deepest and broadest entertainment content for every member of the family to enjoy," said Jack Tretton, president and CEO, SCEA. "With new content being added every day to the PlayStation Network combined with an unmatched line up of exclusive titles on PSP, and the roll out of truly groundbreaking games such as Killzone 2 for PS3, we remain confident in our approach and strategy for another record year of growth and momentum."


SCEA previewed an impressive line-up of PlayStation 3 games for attendees including Killzone 2, inFamous, MLB '09: The Show, MAG, UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves and God of War III. All of which are set to hit this fiscal year. That's fiscal, as in not calendar.

They also unveiled an impressive line up of new PSP titles including portable versions of LittleBigPlanet, Assassin's Creed, MotorStorm and Rock Band.


And they announced two new PSP packs, including one featuring a lilac PSP, coming out later this year.


So what do you think? Year of the PlayStation?

And in 2010 we should get FF XIII and it will be yet another year of the Playstation.

I realize the 360 gets FF XIII also, but it'll be a port and take 4 times as many disks to play, and no Versus. So it's still a Sony win.
